But the Crosstrail's calipers are down inside the rear triangle, on the seat stay. Like my Roam pictured above. There's no interference with the rack mounting holes on the frame, and a conventional rack can be used. I prefer them, as the mounting area isn't as wide as it is on a "disc version".
Sounds good. I ordered the Axiom Journey rack. It should arrive in a few days.

I held off on ordering a rack for my CrossTrail for a long time due to a perceived issue with it clearing the disc brakes and not looking good with alternative mounting points and lots of bending of the rack involved!
